 Quick 5-Minute Stretching Routine To Add To Your Next Workout

When it comes to stretching, it’s tempting to say ‘nah’ or to feel like you don’t have time after your workout. In reality, stretching is vital to helping your muscles feel good after a heavy lift or to keep your body flexible after that morning walk. And it doesn’t take very long at all!

Try this 5-minute stretching routine after your next workout and see the difference it makes in your body!

Hold each stretch for 50 seconds, then rest for 10 seconds:

  • Butterfly Stretch
  • Overhead Tricep Stretch
  • Laying Deep Glute Stretch
  • Cow Face Arms
  • Child’s Pose

Here’s a video to follow along:

And just like that, you’re done!

For a little extra ‘you’ time, focus only on your breath for these 5 minutes and double your stretching time as a quick meditation. One way to focus your breath is to inhale for a count of 4, hold for a count of 4, and exhale for a count of 4. As you expand your breathing, you can extend the length of the count. Your mind and body will thank you.
